WALK 97.5 Real Variety from the 90’s, 2K & Today! Regis Philbin: Why Haven't I Been Asked to Guest Host?


Regis Philbin: Why Haven't I Been Asked to Guest Host?

In a new interview with “Larry King Now,” Regis Philbin opened up about his relationship with Kelly Ripa – there really isn’t one.  The 85 year old revealed that Kelly was very offended when he left “Live” and they don’t talk to this day.  He said, “She thought I was leaving because of her.  I was leaving because I was getting older and it wasn’t right for me anymore.”  He also said he’s surprised he hasn’t been asked to join the show as a guest host, considering Kelly has been rotating guest hosts since Michael Strahan’s departure back in May.

In her latest efforts to break ties with Dr. Luke, Kesha and her team have released emails between the producer and her manager to a New York court that show Dr. Luke criticizing Kesha about her weight.  One email shows Dr. Luke writing, “There have been many times we have all witnessed her breaking her diet plan.  This particular time it happened to be Diet Coke and turkey while on an all juice fast.  We just want to see her stick to the plan for her benefit and the benefit of her career.  Please help keep her on her diet.  No need to resond any further.”  To which Kesha’s manager replied, “Again, she’s a human and not a machine…I will respond if I feel I need to.”  Kesha and Dr. Luke’s legal battle started back in 2014 after she sued him for sexual, physical, verbal, and emotional abuse.

A man pretending to be Ed Sheeran’s manager scammed a charity out of four Super Bowl tickets.  According to TMZ, this guy reached out to the Giving Back Fund saying Ed would perform at the nonprofit’s pre-Super Bowl event in Houston in exchange for four VIP tickets to the game.  He drew up a contract with Ed’s forged signature, took the tickets, and never showed up again.  By the time the fund realized they were scammed, the tickets had already been resold.  Ed Sheeran wasn’t even in the U.S. for the Super Bowl – he was in Australia promoting his new album.
